Pro Tip For Adding Scent To Your Soft Plastic Lures
The other day I was sitting in my kayak when I heard my favorite sound.
It was my reel singing to me, letting me know I had a big fish on.
But I was a little surprised because the rod was in my rod holder, and I had an artificial lure rigged on it.
How is it possible to catch a fish with a lure that needs an angler to put action on it when the rod was sitting stationary in my rod holder?
Fish, especially redfish and black drum, use their sense of smell to find food, and since I was using a smelly Gulp jerk shad, I was able to catch this nice red deadsticking an artificial lure.
But what if you’re not using Gulp products?
Many lures have scent baked into them, or you can put a smelly gel, like Pro-Cure, on your lure before you cast it out.
But I’ve found there’s actually a better and easier way to spice up the scent on your lures that also keeps them from sticking together when it gets hot.
Check out this simple tip in the video below.

Instead of putting Pro-Cure on each individual lure, you can put some in the whole bag and let it really soak into the lures.
This will save you time from having to get out the bottle each time you want to put some on a new lure, plus it’ll keep your lures from sticking together, even if it gets really hot out.
Have you tried this strategy?
